Wonder Why (Take Me Back)

Would you stop and stare
if fireflies filled the air,
and all I did was look at you?
If you held me and I breathed deep,
but I'm too tired to fall asleep,
would you keep your arms
around me?

A thousand broken hearts
and no excuses falling apart.
No more wasting time with memory.
Three more just walked out my door
so I fall down and cry on the floor,
and wonder why I can't remember you.
Take me back.

Would you stand down
if you're trying to fly,
or tell me there are no goodbyes?
And take me with you
way up high?
If I'm falling behind
and I can't hold on,
would you give me a smile
that helps me along?

A thousand broken hearts
and no excuses falling apart.
No more wasting time with memory.
Three more just walked out my door
so I fall down and cry on the floor,
and wonder why I can't remember you.
Take me back...

...to the time when
two hearts beat as one.
You would stop the world
if I slipped away,
and you'd be by me,
say "it'll be okay."
It'll be okay...

A thousand broken hearts
and no excuses falling apart.
No more wasting time with memory.
Three more just walked out my door
so I fall down and cry on the floor,
and wonder why I can't remember you.
Wonder why I never saw the truth,
wonder why I never knew
how much I needed you.

Bela said...

Hmm where are you, Maddie? :)

Never heard of it...Owl City? Huh. Investigating further on the complexity and possible hidden meaning of the name...

GOOD WAY OR BAD? Yikes I was hoping for originality :) hahaha

I'm trying to figure out what this is about. It seems like it should be so obvious...

Maria said...

By the way are you going to set all these poems to acoustic guitar & drums songs? It would work.... Your album title could be TDBU

Bela said...

I'd definitely like to do that...but only for a select few of the songs I have so far. I'm kind of excited about a few new ones that I've written...they seem like they could hold their own in the world!
